National Lampoon Gears Up With RoboDoc26 Apr, 2008 By: Billy Gil
National Lampoon has announced it will release and distribute the comedy National Lampoon Presents RoboDoc, opening theatrically May 10 in a limited run. The comedy, produced in conjunction with National Lampoon and co-written by doctor brothers Doug and Scott Gordon, stars Alan Thicke, David Faustino and newcomer Will Haze as RoboDoc, an android doctor designed to help alleviate the bureaucratic problems of the health care system.
“National Lampoon Presents RoboDoc is a very funny film looking at a very serious issue,” said Tom Daniels, president of worldwide distribution for National Lampoon. “The film fits perfectly into our distribution model, and we anticipate a great response.”
National Lampoon releases up to 12 DVDs a year through National Lampoon Releasing and National Lampoon Home Entertainment, with some titles having broader distribution through major studios. The next DVDs due from the company are National Lampoon's Cattle Call, distributed through Lionsgate, at $26.98; and National Lampoon Presents Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo, which will have distribution through Hart Sharp Video, at $26.95. Both titles are due May 13.
